Meet Shadirah

  • Comfortable with pets

my name is shadirah pettiford a 30-year-old proud mother to my 12-year-old son I am the youngest sibling out of seven my older siblings have at least two children each I am a aunt to 12 kids very often I have a play date over my house for on the weekend to give parents a break and it’s comforting to my son that is the only child even though they’re just cousins they feel like brothers and sisters to him ! I have been the babysitter for my family 15 + Years ! My siblings can’t understand how I do it 12 kids at a time But I know how I do it Stay devoted letting the kids have a good time If it’s something like a sport I’ll also join and I’m pretty active The kids love that about me I don’t just sit and watch I also play Read more with them and even though I play with them they also know I am a adult who’s not to be played with Or disrespected I give them respect as well And secretly I love a little challenge I really like the feeling of multitasking and then succeeding at it i’m a great babysitter you will love me
